If you have a task that you would like to complete at some point, but cannot start working on it yet, you have a number of options in SkedPal:

  1. Leave the task unscheduled and periodically review your task list to decide which tasks are ready to get scheduled.
  2. Set the start date of the task plan so the task does not get scheduled before a certain date.
  3. If the task is part of a sequential project, pause the task so this task and the subsequent tasks in the sequence do not get scheduled until you’re ready.

You can set a task on pause by click on the pause icon on the right pane. You can re-activate the task by clicking on the same icon.
